The NFL national anthem protesters never saw this coming.
They were used to being coddled by their owners and praised by the liberal media.
But Clarence Thomas shut down their racist and anti-American protest with just eight words.
Thomas was being interviewed on Lauran Ingraham’s new Fox News program when he was asked about the protests.
He ripped the America-hating players and rhetorically asked, “What do we all have in common anymore?”
The Daily Caller reports:
“Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas appeared on Fox News for a rare television interview Wednesday night, where he expressed concern about societal cohesion in view of protests staged by professional athletes during the national anthem.
“What binds us? What do we all have in common anymore?” Thomas asked.
The justice suggested that the player protests erode public faith in symbols and shared commitments, exacerbating existing tensions along various social lines.
“When I was a kid, even as we had laws that held us apart there were things that we held dear that we all had in common,” he added. Thomas was born in Georgia’s coastal lowlands among Creolite gullah-speakers, and was raised by his grandparents in Jim Crow Savannah.”

Thomas grew up in the Jim Crow south.
If anyone understands institutional racism and discrimination it’s Thomas and not millionaire athletes who have received every privilege society offers ever since their talent was identified.
Thomas was lamenting the fact that the anthem used to be a unifying event.
Both teams and their fans would all stand as one and honor America and those who made the ultimate sacrifice so the rest of us could enjoy the freedom this nation has to offer.
But that has been swept aside by petulant millionaire athletes who believe that a system where they want for nothing because of their ability to play a child’s game oppresses them.
So they kneel for the anthem and raise racist black power fists in the air.
Americans are disgusted.
Ratings are down.
Sponsors are furious.
And stadiums are empty on Sundays.
It’s all because these anti-American players refuse to show respect for what we all have in common in an effort to divide us through race-baiting tactics and anti-American language.
